This creamy, quick chocolate pie not only melts in your mouth, it also melts any and all resistance to dessert! What an easy way to say "I love you" on Valentine's Day.

What You Need:
(Makes: 6-8 servings)

1 unbaked pastry shell (9 inches)
1 jar (7 ounces) of marshmallow crème or fluff
1 cup (6 ounces) of semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup of butter, cubed
2 ounces of unsweetened chocolate
2 tablespoons of strong brewed coffee
1 cup of heavy whipping cream, whipped
For the Topping:
1 cup of heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons of confectioners' sugar
Chocolate curls*, Optional

What to Do:
STEP 1)
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Line unpricked pastry shell with a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Bake 8 minutes. Remove foil; bake 5 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.

STEP 2) Meanwhile, in a heavy saucepan, combine marshmallow crème or fluff, chocolate chips, butter, unsweetened chocolate and coffee; cook and stir over low heat until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Cool. Fold in whipped cream; pour into crust.

STEP 3) For topping, in a large bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add confectioners' sugar; beat until stiff peaks form. Spread over filling. Refrigerate at least 3 hours before serving. Garnish with chocolate curls if desired.

STEP 4) Happy Valentine’s Day & Enjoy!

*Note: For quick chocolate curls; use a vegetable peeler to "peel" curls from a solid block of chocolate. To keep the strips intact, allow them to fall gently onto a plate or a single layer of waxed paper. If you get only shavings, your chocolate may be too hard, so warm it slightly.
